morning. good morning. >> good morning. >> put this in perspective. >> i heard people say, here we go again, this will be just like dallas. it couldn't be more different. duncan walked in with ebola, he walked away, came back, they really were not prepared hoochl your have a doctor self-monitoring. the minute he had symptoms he put himself in isolation. he went to bellevue. they've been drilling for this for weeks, so it really is different. >> you're confident bellevue is equipped to do this. he will not have to be transferred somewhere else. >> that's what they're telling me. but it's not like the big four hospitals that have been training for years. >> but we learned something new about his fever, his temperature. >> we were told yesterday his temperature was 103. it was 100.3. that's more reassuring. duncan was sent out with 103.
've with that, 43 tested negative. >> he was feeling sluggish. >> this is a question you would wisely ask me this a few days ago. when does it actually become symptomatic. >> and contagious. >> contagious. >> fortunately early on in the disea disease, it doesn't seem to be con tam contagious. >> you've got this the day before. he went on a three-mile run, rode the subway, went bowling, took an uber. he was all around the city. do you have to be concerned? >> you do have to have direct contact with body fluids and if it were spread through the air, there would be tens of millions who would have it. that influenza is spread through the air. >> jon, thanks. >> thank you. >> jon spoerk with another doctor who knows what this patient is going through.
dr. richard sacra recovered from ebola. we'll hear from him. that's ahead. a police officer is in critical condition after a hatchet attack. another is recovering. police shot and killed the attacker. vladimir duthiers is in times square where the incident raises new terrorist concerns. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. it was a blind-sided attack the officers didn't see coming and now the new york police department is looking at surveillance video. >> reporter: this video shows a man running down the street and raising a hatchet before disappearing from the frame. his target? four rookie police officers walking the beat in queens. >> the male who has not been positively identified charge at the officers with a hatchet in his man. >> reporter: the man who is a 36-year-old dark skinned male
was shot by police after striking two with a hatchet. one is in critical condition after what nypd commissioner bill bratton called a serious blow to the back of the head. he did not rule it out. >> we cannot say yes or no heightened concerns really tish to that type of assault based on what just happened in canada, recent events in canada. it's certainly one of the things that first comes to mind. >> reporter: just before the attack, the four officers were posing for a picture. new york city mayor bill de blas blasio. >> with rookie cops starting out in their career and with what happened, we're praying for a speedy recovery for each and every one of them. >> reporter: during the gunfire, an innocent bystander a block away was hit by a stray bullet.

hoping to be locked away. speaking during his court hearing, zehaf bebeau said, quote, i want to do another robbery just so i could come to jail, warning, if you can't keep me, i'm going to do something just to be put in. he had been sentenced and for the laugh two weeks was sitting in this man's shelter in ottawa. >> he was in town dealing with a passport issue but was also hoping to leave for syria. >> vickers, the sergeant-at-arms who chased down and shot the gunman was back in his role leading the procession that opens every session of parliament. a 29-year-old veteran of the canadian mounted police, did his best to hold back emotion offering only a head nod as he
was greeted with a standing ovation. they were unwilling to be intimidated by what they call an act of terror. >> here we are in our seats, in our chamber, in the very heart of our democracy and our work. >> reporter: about that passport issue you just heard reference to, zehaf-bibeau's passport had not been renewed. that's because he had developed an inthor net connection with radicalized canadian living in syria prompting concerns about zehaf-bibeau's potential travel. >> thank you so much. many are wondering if the ottawa shooting could inspire similar shooting right here in the u.s. they say there's good reason to be concerned. bob orr has more, good morning. >> indeed it's increasing concerns about potential copy cats here in the u.s. law enforce mnlts officials are
most worried about a home grown violent extremist called a lone wolf who would decide if it's the right time to strike out in the name of isis or another terror group. the threat is not new, but in recent weeks we've seen isis propping up the propaganda campaign. now isis is on the record praising the ottawa shooting as a good example of what followers should and can do. sources say the fbi is watching a number of americans, perhaps a few dozen or so, who have gone to syria and come back home. those desiring to join jihad are under varying degrees of surveillance and investigation. they've looked at travel records. they've shown he's traveled to the u.s. at least four times between 2010 and 213.
sources say there's nothing in his background so far that connects him in any way to the u.s. ar nonld to indication that he had a strong connection to a global network. charlie? >> bob, thanks. the parents of a hostage are making a plea. his mother says, please tell us what more we can do so that abd abd abdul rahman can continue to serve and live his life in accordance with the teachings of islam. margaret brennan haas more. good morning. >> good morning. they seem to be speaking out on behalf f the 26-year-old. three weeks ago isis threatened to kill him. now a surprising plea has appeared here on what appears to be the twitter account of a
senior fighter from the front aligned with al qaeda and at odds with isis. in his tweet he claims kassig & gave him medical help last year. in the same part of eastern syria where cassic was providing syrian age before he was taken hostage. that post got the attention of reinvigorated online testimony from aid workers like this man who said he witnessed ka sag helping refugees and called on the islamic tweets to release him. but it's the tweet that got their attention debating whether it's moral to execute someone who helped them. if this is about seiching a life or simply competition is unclear. he is skeptical. do you think this helps or hurts kassig? >> i don't know how much pull that really has, but i'm quite sure it's a 3-d game of chess.
and news rah knows how to handle it as does isis. >> he's smart, he's compassionate, has love for all who need help. >> in her tweet last night, paula kassig asked for instrulkzs on how to save her son. she has directly made a plea to isis before but has not received a response. norah? >> margaret, thank you so much. isis is accused of using chemical weapons in iraq. 11 officers went to the hospital. it was chlorine poisoning. there are two other incidents where they suspect terrorists used chlorine. it's a dream for drivers. the gas prices are falling fast. this morning aaa says the
national average for regular is $3.07. that's the lowest in several years. >> tennessee has $2.82 and california is the highest at $3.43. mellody hobson is in los angeles with a look what's dropping the prices. good morning. >> good morning, norah. >> what's behind this drop. >> four reasons. first, the drop for demand by choi na. don't get any wrong. secondly, opec, the oil cartel that produces 40% of the world's oil has not been able to drop its supply fast enough to meet the china st. louis squloun. so there's a bit of oversupply out there. thirdly, the u.s. dollar is stronger than expected. when the dollar gets stronger, oil prices go down.
last but not least many have changed from their winter bartend to their summer blend that they have. >> how long will the factor be in place and how long will the prices fall? >> no one expected it to change any time soon. the way the economy is growing, we'll see that kind of slow consistent growth for a while. the question will be opec. they will probably coordinate their production and bring their production down to firm up prices a bit. the wild card always remains areas of the world where oil is produce thad are inherently unstable, nigeria, iran, russia. >> and what about u.s. energy productions? >> way up. in the last five years, our production is up almost 50%. that means our dependence on foreign oil has dropped precipitously. it's been a really good thing. not only oil production being
way up but the production of natural gas. >> it's affecting russia. >> yes. these low prices are hurting them, especially russia. >> mellody, thanks. you don't hear about tornados hitting washington state but one touched down. it buzzed through blocks with winds at 110 miles an hour. it ripped off roofs but no one was hurt. it's 7 clrch 19.

some dangerous road games in california. you can see these motorcycle drivers taunting a police officer. he pulled over to wait for backup. they're trying to use the video to identify the driver. scary. one thing that is illegal for drivers in california is lane splitting. that's when a motorcycle drives between your car and another. it's legal but is it safe? carter evans looks at that to try to answer the question. >> reporter: search the term "lane splitting" on youtube, and you'll find hundreds of examples. motorcycles one after another whiz past traffic between cars. >> i can split it with my motorcycle. >> some riders do it to save time. others seem to like the thrill. but for many drivers who share the road with bikers brave enough to split lanes, it can sometimes lead to accidents. >> oh, my gosh. >> the motorcyclist in this one

this morning's "eye opener" at 8:00 is presented by walgreens. >> i'm charlie rose with norah o'donnell and sharyn alfonsi. gayle king is off. the newest ebola patient, dr. craig spencer is in the hospital after contracting the virus. before he became ill he went on the subway and bowling with friends. >> an ambulance took him to bellevue hospital from his apartment yesterday. a cdc team is in new york city to make sure the virus is contained. the doctor's fiancee and two friends are in quarantine this morning. neighbors in spencer's apartment building are allowed to come and go. >> governor cuomo is live from his office. good morning. >> good morning, charlie. we have to stop meeting like this. >> yes. we did an interview a couple of weeks ago. you said there are two aspects
of this. and number two, panic and ealth anxiety. what troubles you the most? what worries you the most? >> it would be the anxiety if anything, charlie, because as we discussed at that time, we had an advantage here in new york. most citiesdy. we watched what happened in dallas. and dallas in many ways was at a disadvantage because they were a case of first impression. we have been preparing for weeks and weeks literally. we did a training session the other day where 5,000 health care workers. so our health care workers feel trained, they feel prepared, ep. they did the drills. everything is a textbook case of how the situation should be handled. we know more about the disease. we know how the disease was transmitted. so everything that could have been done and should have been done has been done and it's been
done properly. we have the cdc on site. president obama called last night, asked if we need anything else. we identified eight hospitals in the state that if a case presented itself, these eight hospitals will be fully prepared. bellevue was one of those eight hospitals. and it worked. this was also a doctor, by the way. so he's familiar with how to handle it. >> you know, governor, i was going to say. that's one of the fortunate things. this was a doctor, dr. spencer, who was taking his temperature twice a day. he knew immediately how to alert authorities and handle this in a safe way. i think the question, though, many people are asking, doctor spepser just the night before he was diagnosed, he was riding the subway, he has been in an uber taxi, he had went bowling. can you assure people they're not in a perilous position? >> well, what the doctor knew
was this is not like the flu or a common cold. it's not contagious until you're symptomatic. and the more ill you become, the more contagious it is. the doctor presented himself at the hospital as you mentioned. he was taking his temperature twice day. he presented himself at the hospital when he had a temperature of 100.3. it's been reported that he had a 103 temperature. it wasn't 103. it was 100.3. so as soon as he felt the fever coming on, he presented himself at bellevue. and from there all the proper protocols were handled. and, again, he was only really in the company of three people, his fiancee, two co-workers, who were also -- he went bowling with, and h took a car service
ride. so from his point of view, i would assume he would say as soon as he had a slight fever, he presented himself to the hospital. >> all right, governor cuomo. thanks. well, a rare solar eclipse put on dramatic show for much of the country thursday. this stunning video captured a partial eclipse. that's when the moon blocks part of the sun. it's the third eclipse we've seen in the u.s. this year. the first two were lunar. a total solar eclipse will be available in 2016.

there is room.an without a saturday stayover, that fare difference will be $1,037.11. >> so true. so true. like -- >> what are they typing. >> what are you typing. thank you. that's $1,000. that's ben stiller in "meet the parents" anyone who books a last-minute flight knows the frustration. some airlines posted, guess
what, record-breaking profits on thursday. why are rates still going up, especially if you're going on a holiday. peter greenberg is here. >> jet fuel has dropped 10% but air travel has gone up 17%. every week you wait to book it goes up $5. when it comes to thanksgiving, it's always the same, wednesday before the thanksgiving thursday, so there's no deal in waiting. you don't benefit from procast nating. >> you're saying dysfunction is actually going to save us all money. >> yes. one of the things you have to understand the thanksgiving is an obligatory family function. you've got to go. don't wait until the last minute. that's why they celebrate "planes, trains, and automobiles." you get where you need to go in
tomb to carve the turkey, have everyone press the button and on friday when everyone is stuck in the mall traffic on black friday, you fly back. nobody's flying. you own the plane and you have the weekend back. thank you very much. >> how much are you saving? >> a couple hundred dollars. nobody's flying on the friday after thanksgiving. nobody. >> except peter greenberg. >> so when you think about this, they've been able to regain all their pricing controls and the there are fewer airlines. >> is this an opportunity for a competitor? >> yes, if they're properly capitalized. right now, there's nobody in the wings to fill that. we may have a three-year price lag before we see it come down. airfare wars are always started by the weakest competitors.
we could lose money longer than they could. not a good business model. now they're all making money. >> what is the best day to book a flight? >> it used to be tuesday at moment. now it's changed. now it's sunday. >> why is that? the fares are cheaper the day you book it? >> here's the deal. in the old days, like three days ago, the airfare wars would end by monday. you'd have 24 hours to pay for the ticket you book. so by tuesday, all the people who didn't faye, all of those would come flooding in and that's when you strike, at 1 minute after midnight. now there are not many -- >> does this seem like a long answer to a short question? i asked which day. >> there's a $1,000 fee for that answer. the best day is sunday. >> thank you. >> are you happy for that? >> everybody's looking ahead to christmas. any good deals coming up? >> yes. because christmas is on a
thursday, get it a little bit ahead of time, you're not going to get stuck. >> book that christmas flight on a sunday. all right. thank you. peter is going to be back to show us the sur proving career path for a group of flight attendants. >> this is a great story. >> how they're very well qualified to keep passengers safe. up next, a four-decade quest for justice. >> i'm richard schlesinger. did jealousy keep this teenager from his life? it held until one of them cracked. that's coming up on "cbs this morning." >> announcer: this portion of "cbs this morning" sponsored by international delight. leave a little room for delight. when change is in the air you see things in a whole new way.
it's in this spirit that ing u.s. is becoming a new kind of company. one that helps you think differently about what's ahead, and what's possible when you get things organized. ing u.s. is now voya. changing the way you think of retirement. paper tubes are thrown away... ...enough to fill the empire state building...twice. toss the tube for good... ...with scott naturals® tube-free.
>> reporter: evelyn mccabe has come to her son's grave every day, rain or shine, for more than 40 years. it was september 26, 1969, when she saw john for the last time. >> i don't think i've had a whole night's sleep since it's happened. >> if it's not too painful, can you tell me about his last day? >> he went to a dance. his second distance. >> reporter: john mccabe was just 15 years old and he couldn't wait for the friday night dance. >> took a shower, scrubbed his hair, but he didn't shave. he got all spruced up. at 11:00 i started looking out the window. that's when the dance closes. he should be home by midnight. so i went down to the dance and checked the roads, screaming out the window, john, john!
no john. i started praying at that point. >> the morning after john went missing, children playing in a vacant lot discovered something nobody should have to see. >> which was the body of john mccabe. he had been bound and gagged and tied with rope. >> reporter: former district toerchlt jerry leone took on the case in 2007. >> you go back to first days after the murder. this might have been a dispute between teenagers. it might have involved a girl. it might have involved drinking. whoever knew about john's killing kept this secret for over 40 years. >> while i was a senior in high school. >> were you fearful? >> yes. they hadn't caught the people that killed my brother. >> did you think when you looked at kids in your classes maybe it's him, maybe it's him? >> yes, maybe it was them. maybe they knew something. how could they not know anything. >> the mccabe family was left
without answers for decades. >> i pray every day justice will be served. >> there was only one way this case was going to be solved. >> do you solemnly swear -- >> and how old were you in 1969? >> 17. >> that's when someone came forward. >> how do you know how john mccabe died? >> i was there. >> you can see richard's full report, "the path" tomorrow night on "48 hours." it's the second of a series. we're getting donnie wahlberg dressed right now. >> so great to have you here.

welcome back to "cbs this morning." coming up in this half hour, donnie wahlberg is in our toyota green room with peter -- yeah, that makes sense. the newest member of the new kids on the block right there. we'll ask donnie about the success of "blue bloods." plus the sky's the limit. peter greenberg introduces us to the first responders taking off with her second career. that's ahead. right now it's time to show you a look at this morning's headlines. new york shows how text messages change. they look at the texts they cement each other. when they dated each other, they texted these words more often,
hey, love, what's happening, and afterward, home, dinner. >> i'm a big fan of this. >> i know. george lucas is firing back at a brewery. they make a brew called strikes bock. the name is so close to the movie title it could be mistaken for the trademark. "time" looks at the twitter exchange between conan o'brien and marilyn albright. he tweets i picked out my halloween cows tomb. i'm going as a slutty madelyn eight bright. she tweeted back, i'm considering going as hunky conan o'brien, but that might be too far-fetched. >> those wheaties are helping her. love it. step by step donnie wahlberg has made quite a career for
himself when he's not writing, producing or with new kids on the block. he's a detective on the streets of new york and here's a scene from tonight's episode. >> dave, krooks threaten cops all the time. it probably happens two or three, four time as day. >> which is exactly why you should trust me on this. >> i'm probably as guilty as anyone. this is different you're my kid brother and it'ser issous. >> you know, i'll be extra careful, danny, right? i've got jenko watching my back. >> do me a favor. play house mouse at the precinct a couple of time as week. >> i'll be all right. if i got any questions call me. >> kid? >> donnie wahlberg. good morning. everyone loves the family. you're kind of starting to
change this season. you're maturing, would you say? >> reluctantly, i guess. my character marches to his own beat. my dad's the commissioner. he's cut fro old school clochlkt he walks both sides of the line and it's important for him to be not just considering one of the good cops because his dad's the boss. this year he has a new lieutenant coming into the squad room who's goi to straighten him out. latania richardson is playing the part and she's phenomenal. she might make my character shave. >> don't change. >> i like that look. are you a producer? >> ott on "blue bloods" but "boston's finest". >> i get to shoot a scene on the show. >> you're almost a cast regular. >> it took four hours do just a minute dwlouchl view time to do the show, do wahlburgers? .
it's tough because i'm a dad and a husband and have a lot of things going on too. one-hour dramas are so long. i work pretty much five days a week, sometimes 16 hour as day, eight month as year. there should with a separate category for network dramas because the networks are eight episodes and they're done and we're still working january through february. it's brutal hours but i worked my whole life to be in this position. i'm not going to complain. i am grateful for the opportunities and i love what i do. >> it takes a lot of endurance. >> sure. but i could be digging ditches. >> right. you don't want to complain your diamond shoes are too tight. i heard the clintons are fans too. >> yes. my wife was interviewing hillary clinton last year. she said, i love watching "blue
bloods" on friday. >> speaking of jenny mccarthy, big year for you. a new wedding and a new bride. >> yeah. >> how's it going? >> it's going awesome. she's so awesome. her and i came around in the same era. gone through divorces, gone through so many similarities. to discover really for the first time in our 40s, we never met through all those years, wi just hit uf achlt we have very similar sort of mentalities and spirituality and very similar philosophies. i think we have so much in common. it's a ruffle fit and i think we compliment each other. >> when are you going back to make new music? >> new muff, maybe not too soon but new plans. we have special news we'll be announcing. you'll know it. i can't say it right away because those four guys right there will send me hate letters and text messages. we like to tour and we like to work as much as possible and we
have the best fans on earth. every band says this. every band says this. but we really do have the greatest fan shoes when you speak of yourself, what comes first, musician or actor? >> that's a good question, charlie. neither. i think human being comes first, father, husband, son, you know. my careers are so -- u do so many different things, i wouldn't really want to describe-as any of them. i love them all. i'm grateful for everything i get to do. i mean that sincerely. my father built a truck and was laid off half the time. everything i guess to do, i'm like a kid in the candy store. i'm very, very blessed. >> what's the difference? when you guys were touring as teenagers and now you've all got families app thing going on? what's it like between the scenes now? >> with all the wahlberg brothers? >> do you enjoy it more?
>> i do enjoy it more. when we reform ourd band it was getting a second chance to go back with what you know now. to be 40 and touring as opposed to 20, i know what i did wrong and i know not to let a show go by without taking in as many smiles. it's such a great thing to go on the stage and touch people. we love our fans, we really do. they make such a great sacrifice. to be away from our families, it's great sacrifice. >> roy's the difference between you and your brother? >> about two years in age. mark and i get along great. i know there were stories he didn't make my wedding. i actually didn't make his either. it wasn't anything personal. we both work a lot. but him and i just -- we're different in maybe our goals. i sort of fly, you know, on my own trajectory and he sort of flies on his. he wants to conquer the world.
i just want to conquer my world. >> that's great way to put it. >> so nice to have you here. >> thank you very much. it's been a pleasure. thank you very much. >> you can watch an episode of "blue bloods" tonight right here on 10:00 p.m., 9:00 p.m. central. ahead, from wings to putting out flames. >> this is owned by jetblue. named in honor of new york city firefighters but not the ones on the ground. i'm peter greenberg. coming up on "cbs this morning," the improbable second act story of hundreds of new york firefighters now working as
have you seen the news about barbara comstock? first, the washington post reported, barbara comstock failed to report eighty-five thousand in income. now, we learn, barbara comstock pushed a client's issues in the virginia legislature and didn't disclose it. barbara comstock shepherded a trio of bills through the legislature and into law, but barbara comstock never officially disclosed that all the while she was being paid thousands of dollars. no wonder she hid it.
for more than a decade, major airlines have hired former first responders for their flight crews. no airline has attracted more talent than jetblue. peter greenberg recently spent time with a group of unlikely flight attendants. >> reporter: of all the careers kevin lynch considered, flight attendant was barely on the radar. >> what did you know about the airline business? >> nothing. absolutely nothing.
except maybe serving a soda or two, and that's what i thought it was. >> reporter: before flying for jetblue, lynch had another job. >> i was a new yorkcy firefighter for 24 years. >> reporter: it's a proud and growing tradition at jetblue. today one in ten of the airlines' flight attendants is either a retired or current new york city firefighter. >> ladies, what would you like? >> reporter: and they're offering passengers a lot more than in-flight snacks. >> they're great at altitude. you start talking about decisions at 30,000 feet, it's nice to have 24 years of experience to make that decision. >> reporter: jeff barger is jetblue's ceo. there are a lot of kids who will tell you they dreamt of being a firefighter. not everyone has dreamt of being a flight attendant. now you have firefighters dreaming of being a flight attendant. >> it's a natural transition for those who want to remain in new york. many of them will say, hey,
listen, we were part of a close knit family at this fire department and at jetblue as well. >> reporter: lynch stays in touch with his friends back an engine 302. the firehouse he joined at 21 years old and left at 45, one year after the events of september 11th. >> a big toll on me and other guys too. mentally asia firsthand isly. but you got through it. 24 hours straight up night and day but you were doing it for some reason. find a friend, find a brother. >> reporter: following the attacks jetblue and most major airlines offered free flights for first responders and their families. that second career as flight attendant represented a new opportunity. >> and i mentioned to him about coming to jetblue and right away he got very excited. i think he thought it would be a great idea, and i couldn't shake him loose after that.
>> he len. ed about it from charlie harris. the recruit of firefighter brothers was pretty obvious. >> it was pretty obvious of creating this pipeline, creating talent, it was absolutely amazing. >> it's like the commercial someone told a friend, someone told a friend, someone told a friend. >> totally. >> reporter: last year jetblue dedicated an airplane to new york's bravest. >> that airport is the most washed aircraft wherever it flies. it's amazing. it's like the community is tipping their hats. the fire engine red of the plane is for them. >> jetblue wanted to honor us, firefighters working at jetblue and they gave us a plane. >> do you miss the firehouse? >> you know what i don't miss? i don't miss the fires or the emergencies, i missed back room.
we sat down and cooked the meal. we had some of the best meal. you get five star meals in the dining house, five star dining. as far as running into a burning building, not coming out, not knowing what's going to happen, no, i don't miss that. my family is a lot more important. >> you're back but at 35,000 feet. >> no we're at 35,000 feet. >> how is that produ? >> potato chips. >> you can have all the potato chip use want. he's walking the aisles. >> we should serve him, right? >> absolutely. >> that's right. >> well said. thank you, peter. >> thank you, peter. ahead, som of the most unforgettable moments of the week. you're watching "cbs this
